Vince Wilfork announces retirement, farewell tailgate party at Gillette in hilarious video

Vince Wilfork announces retirement, farewell tailgate party at Gillette in hilarious video

Wilfork, listed generously at 325 pounds, spent the past two seasons with the Texans after winning a pair of Super Bowl championships with the Patriots.

The 35 year-old Wilfork played his college ball at the University of Miami and was selected by the Patriots with the 21st overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft.

Wilfork also ranks 14th on the club's all-time tackles list, with 355 tackles in 158 games played.

A sponsored tweet to announce your retirement?!

Vince Wilfork officially announced on Monday that he's retiring. In the four games with Wilfork, New England allowed 105 rushing yards per game; in the 12 games without him, it gave up 178.8.




Wilfork, an avid fan of smokers and all things grill-related, has partnered with Kingsford for an endorsement deal.

But the announcement of his retirement was also an announcement that he has plans to return to New England- but this time he'll be tailgating. The Patriots are at home to Kansas City Chiefs on the opening day of the season.

"No more cleats. I'm moving on to smoke meats fellas". Peace out! I'm out of here.

Wilfork ends the ad by saying he'll be back "but not on that field".

Wilfork certainly seemed to enjoy his time in Houston, and he made those overalls famous when the team was featured on "Hard Knocks" two years ago.
